This follows another week-long hunger strike undertaken last October by 40 detainees in the CIE, which has an official capacity of 180. It was re-opened last July after being closed for refurbishment works for several months. Barcelona City Council has attempted to have the centre closed but the power to do so remains with the Spanish central government.
